Filter advice

Hi all,

What is the best type of forced-air furnace filter for us? We have numerous allergies to pollens, molds, you-name-it. We live in the suburbs of Denver and we usually get 4 seasons. Summer we use a central A/C, and winter we use the furnace. They both use the same ductwork and filtering through the furnace assemby.

We have used both the cheapy filters and the expensive 3M filters and are wondering if those or something else are better for both allergen reduction and proper HVAC function.

You might also want to look into the UV lights that go into the duct work. They kill germs mold and mildew.Also called germicidal lights.
